exceptions have played down the benghazi story. we all know that. they played it down because president obama, their hero, wants it played down. there is a history in the liberal media of playing down stories that he wants played down and playing up stories that he wants played up. that's why during the campaign we heard so much about the war on women. because president obama wanted that story played up. it's important to point out that things have changed and they changed when george karl a mainstream reporter on a broadcast network broke the story about all the rewrites of the talking points to scrub any references to that gave permission. permission to other mainstream trorts go after president obama in a way they haven't before. coach of the denver nuggets. jonathan karl abc news. he took that from the "weekly standard." >> that's right. that's right. that's also a good point. if catherine herridge comes up with something. and she has come up with a lot. or if steve hayes comes up with something, that doesn't filter into the mainstream press. that isn't permission for anything. but if one

with us tonight, folks. the republican master plan to take down obama care was revealed on the sunday talk shows this morning. republicans using the irs scandal to steal health care from 30 million americans. that's the plan. they think because the irs plays a very small role in implementing parts of this big law, that's going to affect a lot of people, the entire thing is just going to go to hell in a hand basket. their bogus logic makes absolutely no sense, but their mission is very clear and they're very up-front about it. first up, failed presidential candidate, paul ryan, congressman out of wisconsin, kicked off their misinformation campaign this morning. >> as bad as this is, the person in charge of this bureaucratic snafu has now been put in charge of implementing obama care. the irs is now going to be granted huge amounts of unprecedented power over our health care in the implementation of obama care. and so, this is just rotten to the core. this is arrogance. this is big government cronyism. and this is not what hard-working taxpayers deserve. >> huge amounts of unprecedented powe
of the administration. and if they go down, they're going to go down together. these are -- holder and obama -- if holder goes down or holder gets -- for the a.p. or mishandle the irs investigation, obama is going to be touched by that, as well. >> when you first got wind of this whole irs mess, what was your instinct, historian you are? what was your instinct? >> my instinct immediately is this is a very big story. because there's just no defending it. no way to talk around it. it's just plain flat-out wrong and indefensible. and so friday when i first heard about it, i said, you know, oh, boy, here we go. >> now, it's going to be up to katie -- it's going to be up to holder, maybe, up to holder at the end of the day to make decisions about the irs. i have never seen an attorney general with that kind of portfolio before. that's heavy duty. >> it is heavy duty. and is eric holder up to that job? and should we trust him with that authority right now, larry? i'm not sure the answer is yes. i do know that president obama held president bush accountable be for every single thing that happened i
and the president are already cracking down thing this was wrong, obama has already fired -- well, two people have been asked to resign. obama has already announced who he is going to put into replace the -- as the new leader at the irs. i think that the consensus is that there is going to be more hearings and more discussion on what happened, but i do not think that it is going to hurt obama as badly as some may say. those hearings and discussions that are going to happen, what does this do to the president's blanket immigration, gun control, talk about moving forward from here for the president. guest: there is some irony in the fact that republicans are hitting him on one side over this triad, benghazi, and the irs, and the justice department soliciting reporters' phone records. you have republicans hitting the president on these issues. you have this happening on one hand. you have this image of republicans cracking down on the president and being tough, which people like in the public who are republicans. on the other hand, that allows replicants to quietly continue working with obama behind
